Atlanta workers are protected by Georgia’s workers compensation law. This law requires employers to buy insurance or to self-insure in case of an employee injury on-the-job. The goal of Georgia’s workers comp law is to protect workers financially in case of illness or injury. Insurers are paid premiums by employers for workers, and insurers are supposed to pay benefits to workers if an illness or injury happens. A workers’ comp insurer should provide coverage for medical bills, disability income, and other losses as defined by Georgia’s workers’ comp law.
In some unfortunate cases, however, insurers do not pay as promised. Insurers could deny a claim that should be covered, or could decline to pay for particular medical benefits which a worker needs as a part of his recovery process. When and if a worker does not get the benefits that he is entitled to, the injured employee should consult with an Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyer for help.
